Remember me telling you about the Rockdale Art Farm? Happy to say that it has now been approved. Full steam ahead! Richard and I are pleased over this and very happy for Joe Eifrid, the gentleman who is behind this great venture. Way to go, Joe!
Wonderful article written about the Rockdale Art Farm, you may read it just here. Please read it if you can, it is very well written and it explains the very personal reasons behind Joe's determination in making this park a reality.
I think I told you that they plan to have a pollinator garden at the Rockdale Art Farm. Wonderful! Just now, before I began typing this post, I read that hundreds of Monarch butterflies were spotted in the gardens in Asheville, North Carolina...so they are headed to Georgia! By this time next year, there should be flowers at RAF for them. Love the thought of that...
A few years back, we were lucky enough to be at Arabia Mountain when we had hundreds of Monarch butterflies fly over us as we walked up the mountain. What a lovely thing to witness. I will never forget it.
We still have butterflies in our garden today but it is expected to cool down this weekend. The last day I saw my hummingbirds was Oct. 6th. See you next year, little hummers...maybe at the new Rockdale Art Farm, expected to open in the Spring of 2019.
